1993ApJ...410..520S SEARCHING FOR A FAR-INFRARED ENHANCEMENT IN COMPACT GROUPS OF GALAXIES JACK W. SULENTIC AND DUILIA F. DE MELLO RABACA Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa ALABAMA, 35487 Received 1992 February 3; accepted 1992 December 17 ABSTRACT We test the claim that an FIR enhancement is observed from galaxies in compact groups. We present three kinds of evidence that the FIR sources in many groups are likely the combined contribution of two or more members. We conclude that the level of FIR emission from group galaxies has been overestimated in previous work. The overestimate arises because of the limited resolution of the IRAS survey. Correction for this effect will lessen the already weak evidence for an FIR enhancement in groups. This result poses difficulties for models that see the groups as compact configurations in the process of merger. Subject headings: galaxies: clustering - galaxies: photometry - infrared: galaxies
